Xilinx accelerator card targets HPC and Big Data
Breakthrough HPC clustering and simplified programmability enable massive scale-out of cutting-edge compute across existing customer infrastructure and network.

Xilinx, Inc.,  at the SC21 supercomputing conference, has introduced the Alveo™ U55C data center accelerator card and a new standards-based, API-driven clustering methodology for deploying FPGAs at massive scale. The Alveo U55C accelerator brings superior performance-per-watt to high performance computing (HPC) and database workloads and easily scales through with Xilinx® HPC clustering.

Purpose-built for HPC and big data workloads, the Alveo U55C card is the Xilinx’s most powerful Alveo accelerator card ever, offering the highest compute density and HBM capacity in the Alveo accelerator portfolio. Together with the latest Xilinx RoCE v2-based clustering, a broad spectrum of customers with large-scale compute workloads can now implement powerful FPGA-based HPC clustering using their existing data center infrastructure and network.

“Scaling out Alveo compute capabilities to target HPC workloads is now easier, more efficient and more powerful than ever,” said Salil Raje, executive vice president and general manager, Data Center Group at Xilinx. “Architecturally, FPGA-based accelerators like Alveo cards provide the highest performance at the lowest cost for many compute-intensive workloads. By introducing a standards-based methodology that enables the creation of Alveo HPC clusters using a customer’s existing infrastructure and network, we’re delivering those key advantages at massive scale to any data center. This is a major leap forward for even broader adoption of Alveo and adaptive computing throughout the data center.”
